[resolved] RSS feed (7 posts)

    Somehow I've broken the RSS feed for my blog, http://www.leeanna.me

    It happened after I changed to using "pretty permalinks," and the post name structure, ex: http://www.leeanna.me/sample-post/

    I used the plugin Permalink Migration to update links to all of my old entries. I also used it to update the RSS feed -- maybe this is what broke it? I have my original feed as: http://www.leeanna.me/?feed=rss2, which should be migrated to http://www.leeanna.me/feed but that doesn't parse.

    To make things more complicated, I use Feedburner, and my feed address should be: http://feeds.feedburner.com/leeanname

    I'm not sure how to go about fixing it. I'm also not sure what other information would be helpful. If I've left something out, please let me know! It's driving me crazy trying to figure out what I've done wrong.

    Thank you!

    Did you make a database backup prior to all of this?

    I did not think to. :( I'm wondering if my only option now IS to reinstall WordPress?

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    I haven't tried deactivating plugins, although I do need to clean those up, so that's a good idea. I am on the default theme, I just have a child theme set to make some CSS changes.

    However, I just noticed my comment feed works just fine: http://www.leeanna.me/comments/feed/, which makes me doubt it's a plugin, but I could be wrong. I've never tried to troubleshoot an issue like this before.

    I tried removing the migration I had for the regular feed, but nothing still comes up.

    Try switching over to the parent theme for now. And do try the other troubleshooting steps. Plugins can affect one feed without touching the other.

    I fixed it! Thanks guys.

    In the end, I think the problem was that I didn't have http://www.leeanna.me/feed/ - I was missing that last slash. Argh.

    Oh well, it's pushed me to clean out my plugins and update, so that's good.
